Disney Extra Credit - Fall 2012 - (Page 35)

disney cast members show off their talents for charity ncore Cast Performing Arts was formed by a handful of Disney Cast Members with a passion for music who were searching for a way to give back to the community. In 2002, a small choir, dance troupe and pit orchestra presented a cabaret-style collection of Broadway standards. That first concert was the beginning of an amazing journey. Over the past ten years the group has experienced tremendous growth, and today is an ensemble of more than 500 volunteers with jobs throughout the Walt Disney World® Resort. From Entertainment Managers to Marketing Strategists to Jungle Cruise Skippers, everyone is invited to audition for a spot in the annual concert series. A labor of love, the entire cast donates their time and talents to make music with a cause E Encore Cast Performing Arts each concert a reality. From early concept meetings to costume, set and technical design, as well as full rehearsals with the choir and orchestra — almost 50,000 volunteer hours are logged during the year-round planning and preparation efforts. Performing everything from movie soundtracks and Disney classics to patriotic anthems, gospel hymns, rock ballads, pop favorites and more, these Cast Members not only wow audiences with their incredible talent, they also collect thousands in donations for worthwhile causes. Each year the proceeds from these performances are donated to a local charity. In total, Encore has raised more than $200,000 for deserving Central Florida organizations.
